On April 1st 2019, 11 autonomies of its surrounding area such as Hirado, Matsuura, Saikai, Higashi Sonogi, Kawatana, Hasami, Ojika, Shin Kami Goto, Imari, Arita, and including Sasebo as its center, became a group of “West Kyushu Sasebo Metropolitan Area.”

Its future vision is “You KAERU West Kyushu.”
“※KAERU means in Japanese, 1. Change, 2 Return, 3 Able to buy. ”
I founded this company for the purpose of spreading area’s information, as well as creating and selling tourism products and local specialties.
There are lots of unknown products and services like agricultural products and handicrafts in this area. By developing the new sales channels for those products and services, we can bring the newer trade and can return the profit and experience to our partners. This is our main mission.
